Petra Bencurova
Postdoctoral Researchers

Petra is a post-doctoral fellow in David Henshall's research group. She has a BSc and MSc in Biochemistry (specialisation in Genomics and Proteomics). Petra completed her PhD in Neuroscience at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic in 2021. In 2022, she joined FutureNeuro as a Fellow through Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions to research the molecular underpinnings of developmental epilepsy. Her research project focuses on miRNA regulation during postnatal brain development with a particular interest in the regulation of voltage-gated sodium channels. In her research, Petra combines RNA sequencing with the exploration of miRNA function and their involvement in brain development (in vitro and in vivo approaches) and computational methods to unravel the mechanisms underlying the manifestation and progression of Dravet Syndrome symptoms.
